Stuck at the airport
The trip has been great and we've had a wonderful time. At this point we're just thinking it is a matter of when rather than if in regards to moving up here. We're still trying to puzzle through logistics though, and I think we're only going to be casually looking until after the baby's born. We've also decided (*gulp*) that we're going to look for something further out on more land. We spent most of the day on Friday driving around and that's what we decided would be the right direction. We didn't just drive around though while we were here - we also went to the zoo, the science museum, Powell's (and got a bunch of great books - we're very excited, especially Matt), the Saturday Market (a neat local crafts market, the best of that sort of thing I've ever been to) and ate twice at this great brewery in downtown. I also got to take my first trip to a yarn store, which was overwhelming, but fun. I bought some yarn and a set of 5 double pointed needles... to go with my sock knitting book I picked up at Powells. I know I'll probably regret this later, but I am so fascinated by the idea of knitting socks I just couldn't resist. We'll see how I do... I've read one person say that knitting on double pointed needles was like wrestling with a porcupine, so I'll be curious to see how bad it really is.
Oh, so tired and so ready to be asleep in my own bed. I don't think we're going to be getting in at Oakland until after midnight and then we still have to get the car and drive home... I doubt we'll be home before 1:30 am. I really feel for Matt - he has to get up and go to work tomorrow, and he's already told me that this next week is going to be a busy week.
